Ex-Milan attacker and a member of the 2006 World Champions, Filippo Inzaghi, spoke about Romelu Lukaku’s decision to join Roma.
In an interview with il Messaggero, Inzaghi discussed Lukaku’s fit at the capital club and how his arrival could change Roma’s objectives for the season.
“I thought he would remain at Inter, with my brother, but in the end I realize he decided to go to the best team for him,” Inzaghi told the Italian newspaper.
“I think Lukaku could have a similar impact on Roma as Batistuta did in 2001,” he added. “Batistuta’s arrival helped give the Giallorossi a boost for the Scudetto charge.”
“I say that Lukaku, paired with Dybala, can help push Mourinho to the Scudetto contenders in Serie A. The Belgian striker could not have chosen a better place in terms of motivation and fans appreciation.”
